“22nd Adolescent Days” will be organized in Istanbul between 1st and 3rd of December 2017. This year's symposium will take place at Koç University Hospital with the cooperation of Koç University School of Medicine, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department.
This year, the symposium will have emphasis on “Psychotherapy Approaches for treatment of Adolescents”. Adolescence is the period during which identity is being molded and the individual seeks an answer for the crucial question of “who am I?”. Adolescents are especially prone to stress factors, mood changes and pychopathology. Therefore, efficient psychotherapeutic approaches which are adapted to unique characteristics of adolescence are of vital importance in this critical period. Recent advances in psychiatry and psychology provided many new and evidence based psychotherapy modalities, which may bear much influence on betterment of adolescent mental health.
In this symposium, we aim to provide rich discussions guided by expert clinicians and researchers informed by latest literature findings that apply to recent advances in psychotherapy for adolescence. Apart from lectures and conferences, we also accept poster presentations, and the best poster will be awarded at the end of the symposium.
We sincelerly hope to have you among us for 22nd Adolescent Days at Koc University Hospital, centrally located in beautiful and historic Istanbul in December.
